Week 6 Preview

If you listened to this week's Juco Pod, then you know this is a big upcoming weekend! So much is going on. And with that we are going to give you a decent look at what is going on across the country for those games and who to follow along or to watch/keep your eyes on. 

#13 San Mateo vs #1 Ohlone-Saturday

Coming into the week, Ohlone was sitting on top of California with a perfect 16-0 record, but unfortunately they dropped their first game of the season on Thursday to Canada 8-7. So coming off the first lost you can expect them to come out swinging even more so then they already have this season. Ohlone is the best offensive team in the state of California. They currently are first in the state in Runs Scored (208), Hits (242), Doubles (58), Triples (11), RBI’s (183), Extra Base Hits (83), Total Bases (364), Hit by Pitches (52), Average (.371), On Base Percentage (.483), and  Slugging Percentage (.558). They are second in Sac Flies (16), At Bats (652), and are third in Homers (14), and Walks (104). All of those numbers have just been in 18 Games. Leading this historic start to the season for them has been the trio of SS Bradley Norton, OF Matt Palomino, and OF Max Heverly. Norton (Rutgers) is hitting the team leading .487 with 3 doubles, 3 triples, a homer, 17 RBI’s with 16 runs scored. Palomino is just behind him hitting .437 while leading the team in at bats with 71. With that he has 13 doubles, a homer, 19 RBI’s and has scored the team leading 25 runs. Rounding out this power trio is Heverly. He is hitting .422 with 4 doubles, 14 RBI’s, 24 runs, and leads the team with 13 Stolen Bases. 

For san Mateo they started off the season  at 9th in the state and moved up to 8th a week later. They have since fallen to 13th after last week's unfortunate sweep by Marin. Their offense has been led this season by C Korrey Siracusa and C Danny Carnazzo. Siracusa leads the team hitting .365 with 2 doubles, 6 RBI’s and 13 runs. Carnazzo is just behind his teammate hitting .345 with a team leading 20 hits, 5 doubles, 6 RBI’s, and has scored 13 runs.

Week 5 Teams and Players of the Week

Div 3: North Lake (2-0)

When looking at Division 3 schools in Texas one that almost ALWAYS gets overlooked is North Lake. This year they are not off to start. Getting blown out in their first 2 series by LSU-Eunice and McCook. They caught fire last week beating Southwest College Prep 14-3 and 14-4. In just the 2 games they played this past week they outscored Mountain View 23-0 (they finished the sweep of them Monday with a 21-8 win. So outscored them 44-9 in 3 games.)

In the first game they took it 12-0. They were led by the duo of Daylan Bower who went 2-4 with a homer, 4 RBI, 1 R, and 2 BB, and Carson Cheaney who was 2-6 with a homer, 3 RBI’s, and 3 Runs. 

In their second game, they won 11-0. This game was led on the mound by Brendan Parker who saw 24 batters over 6 innings, striking out 7 of them with just 3 hits and 1 walk. At the plate, Cheaney came out again only going 1-4, but had a double, with 3 RBI’s and scored 2 runs. 

CCCAA: Marin (3-0)

Many of you have probably never heard of this NorCal team. Or even know where Marin County is. It is just north of San Francisco and to be honest if there was just one team of the week Marin would take home that honor. 

This past week they took on the then ranked #10 San Mateo Bulldogs, and came out with a Sweep. You read that right a Sweep of a top 10 team!

It started Tuesday when they beat the bulldogs 12-4. Marin put up crooked numbers in their 1st four innings. 2 in the first, second, and third, and 4 in the fourth. Then they scored another in the 5 which put the score to 11-4. They put one more up in the 7th to get to the final score. This game was lead by Dionathan Cornet who was 3-4 on the day with 4 RBI’s and 2 runs. On the mound the win went to Zach Tonnerre who went 6 strong innings striking out 7. 

The next win came on Thursday when Marin traveled to San Mateo and got it 8-4. This is another game that started of fast and they never looked back. In the first Cornet had an RBI double that drove in Anthony Pomi. The next batter Joey Loveles hit into a Fielder's Choice which drove Jacob Berg in for their second run. In the second they put up a 3-spot thanks to a Bases loaded walk and then a 2 RBI double by Loveles. Their final runs came in the 4th when they put up yet another 3 spot. 

The final game of the series took place back on Marins home turf that Saturday. This game was dominated more by the pitchers even though it was a 6-0 win for them. Owen Hamilton got the start and went 6.2 innings with 4 punch outs with a walk and 6 hits. Tyler Shelley came in for the last 2.1 innings struck out 2 with just a walk and a hit.

Div. 1- West District Preview (1, 9, 18)

To come out of Arizona is one thing. To make it out of there and win the bid to go to Grand Junction is another, and once there to win the whole thing is another. Well, that is exactly what Central Arizona did last year. Getting into the Arizona playoffs last week of the season as the 4-seed. Then winning the Region 1 title. Then headed up to take on the rest of the district and took care of business there. Once in Colorado, it was on. Making the switch back to metal bats was a huge advantage for them. They won their first 2 games before losing to Iowa Western. They fought back through the Losers bracket beating Chattahoochee Valley, and Walters State before taking on Iowa Western for the second time in the National Championship game. They took care of the Reivers in a slugfest 13-8. 

Previous winners:’19 Central Arizona (National Champs), ‘18 Southern Idaho, ‘17 Southern Nevada, ‘16 Yavapai (National Champs), 

The Powerhouse that is the west is just as you would have thought...Loaded with talent. Taking home Preseason Player of the Year honors is Christian Encarnacion-Strand (Oklahoma State), while Mitchel Devocivh (Washington State) from Central Arizona takes home the Preseason Pitcher of the Year.
